Can you say that about Vince?

Doc, your prior comment got me to thinking about what the "norms" (if that term can be used for this group)are for our little corner of the web. I just thought I would list them and see if what I thought they were was similar to what others thought. Case in point: Phil's singing---didn't even think about it cause I don't hang out much where that happens.

I'm a taker here---there's not much that I can teach these boys (and girl). I try to spread what I learn here with others of the like-mind. As techno-tarded as I am, I am always surprised how many heads have NO idea that these shows are here.

You seem like a nice guy--welcome. Of course, if you start talking funny, we will have to get rid of you ,NAH?

TOOTMO

Feels good to be here, thanks. I do get a little paranoid trying to post, wary of why I’m saying something in the first place, and the way things can go south at the drop of a .....

Vince? Can’t offer much there; while I still saw many shows after Brent passed, it was Jerry that called. My life was in a weird process of falling apart and coming together during those years. I couldn’t tell you the last time I listened to a 90s show.

Congratulations, dire! This is a huge moment. And believe what they tell you - the first year is the hardest. Which isn't to say that you should drop your guard or anything, but aside from the occasional irrational urge, it does get easier the more time you have. Eventually you hardly ever think about it.

I had my last drink July 16, 1986 at the ripe old age of 23, and aside from a couple of horrible times during a particularly horrible relationship, I have never missed it.

Happy Birthday!

(No biggie, because this isn't about me, but it is actually just past 23 years - which means that sometime in the next six months or so I'll pass a point where I've lived more years SINCE I got sober than I did BEFORE I got sober, THAT blows my mind ... )

If nothing else, you've no doubt seen that I can be just as rude, abrasive and dumb-headed as any other idiot on here. It's not about perfection, but the acceptance of non-perfection.

I think it's awesome - and a total trip - that you met your wife the day you got sober, and I love how EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US breaks that unritten rule about no relationships in the first year. You can't learn to operate a car just by reading the owner's manual ...

I'm feeling a lot of love for you today, dire - I hope you & the Mrs. dire do something special to celebrate.

thanks man, and Mrs. Dire says thanks too!! my first several attempts, i went along with the "no big changes, no relationships, blah blah blah." that just sent me back to detox and rehabs - lol. figured i'd try a different approach and actually try to be happy. like "they" say, insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results. well, so far anyways, going against the grain of the "AA rules" has worked out better than any other approach I have tried. I never had more than 60 days under my belt before a disastrous turn for the worse. it is amazing how a little happiness, great supportive people, wonderful kids, and a beautiful, smart, loving (sober) wife can do for sobriety.

thank you for all your kind words!!
